A park with a monument on the equator line. Inside there is a nice ethnographic museum, and around - many souvenir shops and restaurants. Also you can see volcano Pichincha (from afar), a monument to the recent war with Peru, and the three mountains featured on the ecuatorian coat of arms. The crater is close by also.

Address: Middle of the World, Ecuador
Directions: north of Quito, on the Equator
